I took my girlfriend in to the lfs to see all of the corals that would be available to me later on and got to talking to the salesman about...

    So, we have had our new 55 gallon set-up cycling for roughly 2 weeks now. As of this evening: Ammonia, Nitrite, and Nitrate are all zero'd out. PH is 8.3, Temperature is 78, SG is 1.025 (though the swing arm hydrometer is not so reliable, we are waiting for our refractometer and better heater to...

    Alright I started cycling the tank about 7days ago. Initially I started with 5-6 shrimp in a nylon sock that I stuck in my sump. After like 2days the smell was pretty unpleasent and the wife shut that operation down. And to be honest her dumping a bottle of febreeze in the air + the shrimp...
